Anna and Daryna shared their valuable experiences of participating in Erasmus+ youth exchanges and the European Solidarity Corps program. Moreover, they presented various EU-funded programs, including the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Fellowship Programme, College of Europe opportunities, different traineeships in both EU and Ukraine-based institutions, and more.
  • Awareness of EU Initiatives: Participants learned about the ‘EU NEIGHBOURS east’ program and the ‘Young European Ambassadors’ initiative, gaining insights into the opportunities these initiatives offer to young Ukrainians.

Target Audience: The target audience for this event consisted of young university students and participants of the ‘Career Weekend’ project in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Face-to-Face Communication Reach: Anna and Daryna had direct face-to-face interactions with 22 young people, allowing for personal engagement and knowledge sharing.

YEAs Involved: Two passionate Young European Ambassadors from Ukraine, Anna Lavreniuk and Daryna Lynnyk, actively participated in this initiative.
